Created for chilling meat and poultry for packaging and shipping, the Linde Accu-Chill combo chiller has a maximum capacity of 15,000 lb./hr. After a combo bin is rolled into place within the chiller, the product is placed on a slotted turntable equipped with wiper arms. The turntable moves slowly and distributes the product throughout the bin, while a bank of snow horns convert liquid carbon dioxide into fine snow. Feedback to the controller from a weigh scale ensures the correct amount of snow is applied to the bin. Once the bin is filled with snow, it is removed and placed in cold storage or sent to a downstream processing area.
